“The cultures inherent in both Japan and the Southern United States have shaped my development (destiny) as an artist. I try to depict the beauty of humanity and its strength through paintings the only way I know how.”
Born in Japan, Yuko Nogami Taylor is a mixed media painter in demand regionally, nationally and internationally. Her inspirations come from modern western art and Japanese historical art images. Her unique style combines two heritages of the Southern United States and Japan on canvas, serving to create harmony between nature and humble people.
Many of her paintings are based on rare photos of African-Americans taken in the 1900s. She creates a connection between them and our inner selves, using her Japanese heritage to celebrate the strength, honor the humility, and share the beauty that is in all our lives.
